A visit to the Domain (that's what we call our 13,000-acre campus) is the best way to determine if Sewanee is a good fit for you. During this time around COVID-19, we will do our best to bring Sewanee to you, virtually!

Visit Options

Virtual Visits

The University made the tough decision on March 14 to cancel all campus visits and events until further notice. This decision was made out of concern for the health and well-being of our students, staff, faculty, and the greater Sewanee community. The Office of Admission will continue to offer a variety of virtual visits for anyone who would like to learn more about Sewanee.

Campus Visits

Sewanee offers a variety of campus visit options. Each includes a student-led tour and a counselor-led information session. Custom options include opportunities to interact with faculty members, sit down with a coach, meet with the Sewanee Career Center, and more.
